Free Christmas tree recycling

From 9 January your District Council will be helping local people recycle real Christmas trees.

All residents have to do is place the tree at the edge of their property on their usual green/recycling day collection and the tree will be composted along with other garden materials.

Any tree over 5ft in length must be broken/sawn down to a manageable size, with decorations and plant pots removed. Alternatively, trees can be taken to the nearest household waste recycling centre. The initiative ends on 3 February

Plain Christmas cards and wrapping paper can be included in residents' kerbside cardboard and paper recycling to be collected by the District Council’s contractor Serco. Foil-backed and glittery cards and paper should not be included, but placed in general household waste grey bins or black sacks.

  • Derbyshire Dales residents can use the online postcode search to check on their collection cycle, where they can also download and view their 2017 collection calendar.
